The 9th Grade Oklahoma History class is a one-semester course surveying the history of Oklahoma through the strands of social studies, including geographical, economic, and cultural study. The course begins with an exploration of Oklahoma’s geography, natural resources, cities, and transportation infrastructure. A chronological study of Oklahoma history begins with the prehistoric period up until the arrival of the first Europeans. Students will learn about the arrival of the Five Tribes via the Trail of Tears, the American Civil War in the Indian Territory, and the Boomer movement that led to statehood. Events of the 20th century include the Green Corn Rebellion, Oklahoma’s contributions to World War I and II, the civil rights movement, political realignment, and the Oklahoma City bombing. The course concludes with an investigation of cultural contributions by creative Oklahomans.
